My youngest always likes to watch them make pizza.
I didn't bring my own bottle as I intended to order another of the 2008 Luca Abrate Roero Arneis Vigna Tabaria on the wine list Catha and I enjoyed there the last time. Unfortunately, they no longer had any.
I had my usual apéritif of Campari Soda to start and ordered the usual appetizers.
Opting for just some wine by the glass, Catha chose a bright, fruity pinot grigio and I a drier trebbiano. Both were ok, not bad at all with the appetizers. We also split the usual Insalata di Rucola (Arugula Salad) which I forgot to photograph.
I and my 2 older sons had pasta dishes next, while Catha and the youngest went straight to the mains.
My Spaghetti allo Scoglio
The eldest's Spaghetti al Nero di Sepia
I didn't get the name of the second one's pasta but it had a cream sauce with mushrooms. For main courses, we just shared 2 veal dishes (one with a lemon sauce and the other just pan-fried like Wienerschnitzel) and a dish of saffron risotto.
2 orders of Panna Cotta,
Chocolate Mousse, and,
Caffé Caruso is a very popular Italian restaurant, we most always manage to bump into friends there. That day was no different as Robert Burroughes and James du Vivier happened to be lunching there as well.
Good lunch that we all enjoyed a lot. The kids love eating here, as do Catha and I. It was a nice way to usher in the kids' schoolyear.
